For RF triggers, I'm toying between PocketWizard and Phottix Stratos II for my new setup. Yes, the PW is double the price but I hate buying something twice because I didn't like the first model. PW is THE standard but the Phottix is cheaper and appears to have a hot shoe built in.

If I buy the PW, I noticed that the SB-600 has no sync ports. I know I've seen this discussed but I can't find the thread.

I assume what I need is a hot shoe adapter that goes on the umbrella mount and has a sync port, but there are dozens online. Recommendation?

I am ignorant about the Pocket Wizards, but some of them apparently have a mini phone connector instead of PC connector. If applicable, see

Specifically, note the two entries there for PocketWizard, including the Custom, which has female shoes with the mini phone plug.

Otherwise, several radio slaves have the hot shoe on them, the flash just fits on it.

I used the YN-622N's with my SB-600 when I had the flash. It worked perfectly for me in both TTL and manual. Plan to get the SU-800 though if you go that route. While you can make all the changes through the button interface on the YN units, it is much easier with a SU-800.

Thanks Wayne...this one looks right given that the PW comes with a miniphone to miniphone cable

Thanks, but I've already narrowed my trigger selection down to the Phottix or the PW.
